Defining Assistive Educational Technology

Assistive Educational Technology (AET) is the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of processes and resources that are used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals for learning (with disabilities).

Cavanaugh, 2000

The distinction between assistive and everyday technologies is becoming less clear as the concept of universal design is incorporated into conventional technology.
